Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise

Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise

Since 1943, the only wines entitled to the "Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise" appellation contrôlée are those made from the white and black "Muscat à petits grains" grape variety, harvested in a defined area in the communes of Beaumes-de-Venise and Aubignan.

The conditions for producing this sweet natural wine are strict: The bunches are harvested by hand in successive passes depending on their ripeness, the grapes must have a sugar content of more than 252 g/l, mutage must be carried out during fermentation with a minimum of 96% pure alcohol, the wines must contain a minimum of 100g/l sugar and have a minimum acquired alcohol content of 15%.

The Muscat terroir, mainly sandy and/or stony, produces a naturally sweet wine with a clear, limpid and brilliant colour.

Beaumes-de-Venise Rouge

In 2005, the red wines of Beaumes-de-Venise, classified since 1979 in Côtes-du-Rhône-Villages, reached the rank of cru of Côtes-du-Rhône and were placed alongside other prestigious municipal appellations, such as Châteauneuf -du-Pape, Vacqueyras and Gigondas.

The geographical area is delimited to the north-east of Avignon in four communes of Vaucluse: Beaumes-de-Venise, Lafare, La Roque-Alric and Suzette. Partly located on terraces, on sandy-clayey soils, the vineyard occupies the southern slope of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Protected from the mistral by the surrounding reliefs, it benefits from a warm Mediterranean climate, cooled locally by a certain altitude.

The appellation only produces red wines mainly made from Grenache Noir (50% minimum). Harvested and sorted by hand, these grapes give rise to powerful and concentrated wines.

Côtes-du-Rhône

Côtes-du-Rhône

The Côtes-du-Rhône regional appellation defines the wines produced throughout the Rhône Valley between Vienne and Avignon. It includes reds, rosés and dry whites (a very small minority) produced in 171 communes and 6 departments (Ardèche, Drôme, Loire and Rhône for the northern Rhône Valley, Gard and Vaucluse for the southern Rhône Valley).

Grenache (40% minimum) dominates the vineyards dedicated to this appellation for both reds and rosés, with Syrah also very present throughout the southern part. A number of additional grape varieties (cinsault, carignan, counoise, vaccarèse, etc.) can be added to suit local soil and climate conditions.

The reds can be light and fruity, with a vigorous attack, but they can also be wines with good ageing potential, more tannic and structured, from the warmest, sunniest vineyards. The rosés, heavily influenced by Cinsault, are fruity and should be drunk young. The rare white wines are fresh and aromatic, thanks to blends of white grenache, roussanne, marsanne, bourboulenc, clairette and viognier.
